Revelation 7 pt 2

Revelation 7 pt 2

Hi, continuing our study into Revelation chapter seven.

Revelation 7:1  ‘After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.’

The four winds describe the coming trumpet judgements of chapters eight and nine of Revelation. But yet four angels are posted to keep these winds blowing until God decrees that the right time has arrived. These judgements will bring immense chaos and disorder to this world yet God is in sovereign control. 

Mankind already faces climatic disaster in the shape of flood, fires and earthquakes. These are mostly caused by the greed and negligence of man and his absolute failure to steward the planet we have been given tenure of.

In our arrogance, we believe there is a solution to the problems that plague our environment; if only we could just stop our greedy and argumentative ways – just for one moment!

But yet there is far worse to come.

The angels are holding back the winds of judgement and another angel from the east is fast approaching.  

And God is seated upon His royal throne. 

Psalm 47:8  ‘How awesome is the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth.’

Praise His name!

And previously:

  • Revelation 19:10 The Testimony of Jesus…
    One understanding of the testimony of Jesus is that he will return as the radiant King; and he will bring peace and righteousness to this earth when he establishes his kingdom and reigns from Jerusalem. 
  • Revelation 19:9 Invited
    The Church as a whole will be invited to the wedding as a corporate being but we will also be invited as individuals, by virtue of our personal salvation that we have received.For many of us who are not usually invited to high-society events and who are often left out and behind, this comes as a blessing indeed!
  • Revelation 19:7 Eager Anticipation
    In the same way, we are called to look forward to the day when we meet with Christ Jesus, on the day that he returns in power and glory. He is our blessed hope and our lives lived here on earth should be directed towards this coming moment. 
  • Revelation 19:7 A Wedding!
    I pray that we will live out our salvation with fear and trembling, and walk closely with our Lord, that we might walk with confidence and reassurance, knowing that we will be warmly welcomed and honoured as a guest, wearing the white robes of righteousness. 
  • Revelation 19:6 Hollering With Joy
    This side of glory, we pass through victories and defeats, as we march faithfully on. But even the most stoic and conservative amongst us might be forgiven here for ‘hollerin and a hooterin’ around the yard and throwing his hat up wildly in the air!
